RE:Not quite quintessential
Oxford Dictionary has this entry for "quintessence":
1.The most essential part of any substance, extracted by natural or artificial processes; a highly refined essence or extract; spec. in older chemistry, an alcoholic tincture obtained by digestion at a gentle heat.
(hmmm "extraction"?-fishing, digestion of alcohol?-drinken and fishin.
2. A lofty object of pursuit after Morone Saxatilis populations have retreated south and complacent anglers begin the dilerium tremors.
(ok I made up the 2nd one)
